"Mind Meister doesn't advertise an intuitive interface, but it has by far one of the most intuitive interfaces of any web-based mind mapping tool I've tried. Mind Meister's basic account is free and has all of the features that a teacher or student needs. With a free account users can collaborate with others, share via email or embedding, and download or export files. One of the features I really like is the ability to add active links to websites. The linking feature is a good one for students trying to organize their thoughts for a research paper. The intuitive piece of Mind Meister is in the creation aspects. To add a new topic or "idea box" users simply click the green "add" button. To remove an item click the "delete" button. Organizing the items with Mind Meister is a simple matter of dragging them to the position you want them in. Changing the size and type of text is as easy as changing the size and type of text in a word document." (FreeTechnologyforTeachers.com)

I taught 7th grade English for 4 years (2014-2018). That's why I posted the results here. It doesn't look like it, but we work hard in class, and we try to work smart. It makes me so sad that our scores aren't better.
This is a repeated link. It is used under Bloom's taxonomy and thinking skills as well as here. If I had the digital capability, I would connect a line between the Bloom entry and the ISTE entry.
